How run of the mill dialogue had inspiration leapfrog

When you generally visit  a new country or a place you tend to ask people around you for suggestions of places to visit and things to do. Some will be kind enough to help you with an entire itinerary and some will say this place has all you want. So what do you want to do? Ever thought that could be fun? Well it was in my case as I landed up doing something I'd wanted to do for quite sometime.

This is just to say
Thank you in a really small way

For what you might question?
Well it's something I'm just about to mention!

I'm not sure you remember that conversation
About what are the best things to do in this nation

I'd asked what you'd recommend
You said- that depends coz everything you wish for is available around the bend!

That set me thinking
What is it, that will set my heart singing?

That led me to whip out my bucket list
Aha! I could finally do something that I'd always wished!

Sometimes ever a very small word
Can lead you to open up a whole new world

That you somewhere knew existed
But had pushed away to deep hidden recesses

After a bit of research I picked up the phone
And had myself booked for a tandem sky dive- Oh boy! I couldn't wait to be airborne!!!

Even sometimes run of the mill dialogue
Can have inspiration leapfrog

Hope you're not embarrassed by this short poem
It's just something instant poet does to wish away boredom

So thank you again
I guess its time for me to put down my pen

Congratulations on completing a decade at work!!!

I had one of my ex-project managers complete a decade of service at work so wrote the below poem to congratulate him on this momentous occasion.

Heartiest congratulations! A decade's time for a big celebration!
Ten illustrious years, For your glorious career we all cheer!
A decade of service, Your wealth of experience- priceless.
Countless challenges triumphed, Your boundless energy has everyone pumped.
Your inclusive leadership style, Makes everyone feel worthwhile.
Empowering us to excel, And chart paths novel.
An action oriented leader, Who is more than a manager.
A mentor and motivator, Whom to emulate we aspire.
Working with you has been truly inspiring and awesome, Best wishes for many more magnificent years to come!

Want to express gratitude to your doctor for everything he/she has done for you and are at a loss of words? Why not use instant poet's poem below to express your thanks? 

Doctors are guardian angles, Incarnations of God on earth to cure people
Your tireless energy and positive countenance, Like a beacon to a sinking ship bring joy in abundance.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, You are the best! A class apart!
Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.

Eulogy for my Grandmother (Nani)

One of the hardest things a person has to do in life is write and give an eulogy on the passing away of a loved one. Last week, my Nani left for her heavenly abode and today was the prayer meeting on the Chautha (4th Day). 

I'm sharing with all of you the eulogy in the form of a poem I wrote last night for her on behalf of all her grandchildren. I share this here because paying tribute to a dear one and speaking to a packed room full of people, while keeping your emotions in check is not easy, however is inevitable.

Thank you so much for joining us in prayer this afternoon to pay homage to our beloved Nirmal Khanna. A mother is more precious than any other person. A grandmother, being a mother twice over, is closest to her grandchildren. On behalf of her grandchildren whom she adored: Ujjwal, Kamakshi, Dhruv, Akshiena and Vyomi, this poem is dedicated to our iron lady with a will of steel.
(My Nani- Nirmal Khanna)

Your loving arms Were our tranquil oasis Your radiant smile Exuded a halo …
